Trollope in Barsetshire

My attention is drawn to a new production at Hammersmith Riverside Studios:

Edward Fox, the eminent British actor, brings to life the author and the world of Anthony Trollope in a one-man performance drawn from extracts of the Barchester Chronicles and from An Autobiography.

Anthony Trollope stands out as a hugely popular novelist, one of the greatest of the Victorian era, an author invested with a wonderful gift for words. For six of his novels he invented Barsetshire, both a county and a town. Here he filled this world with an astonishing range of characters from Dr. Harding, the gentle Warden, to Mrs. Proudie, the domineering Bishop’s wife. Like all truly celebrated novelists Trollope deals with conditions of life that touch men and women, against the background of country life and the complexities, plots and counter-plots of the cathedral close. Humane, witty and well-observed Edward Fox wields his magic to bring many of these much-loved characters to life.

There will be a post-show discussion with Edward Fox and Richard Digby Day on Fridays 25 February and 25 March.
Suitable for ages 14+.
110 minutes with one interval.

I am pleased to say that we have three pairs of tickets to give away for this one-man show ...

Sorry folks - the competition is now closed - congratulations to the three winners - hope that all have a great night out!
